In between winning, losing, and the hopeful’s, there is a lot of room for comical situations to unfold when gambling. For today’s dose of funny, we gave two funny examples some might find relatable.
Pamela is having a bad day at Vegas’ roulette tables. Having played all day, she took her last $20 to place a bet but didn’t trust her lack of luck anymore. “What rotten luck! What on earth should I do now?”
The man seated next to her got up to leave and suggested, “Why don’t you play your age?” As he walked away, the man heard a commotion behind him and returned to the roulette table that had already drawn a crowd.
When he pushed through the crowd to the front, he saw Pamela unconscious on the floor with a casino manager hovering over her. Stunned, he asked the manager, “What happened? Is she alright?”
The manager gave a shrug and said, “I have no idea. She put all her money on 29, and 34 came up, and then she just passed out!”
One day at work, Frank heard a voice that said, “Quit your job, dump your girlfriend, sell your condo, and take all your money to Las Vegas.”
Frank dismissed the voice and life went on as usual until he heard the same voice again the following week. Insistently the voice gave him the instructions again, “Quit your job, dump your girlfriend, sell your condo, and take all your money to Las Vegas.”
The voice became more frequent, and the more Frank tried to ignore it, the more he heard the demands from this voice.
Eventually, Frank caved and quit his job, then he dumped his girlfriend and sold his condo. When he got to Las Vegas, the voice said, “Go to Caesar’s Palace.” Frank obliged, and when he got there, the voice further instructed him, “Go to the Roulette tables.”
Feeling a sense of excitement build, Frank sat down at a Roulette table and waited for his next instruction. “Place all your money on number 18.” Frank did as the voice told and placed his bet. A moment later, the dealer said, “And the winner is number 6!”
Suddenly the voice in Frank’s head bellowed, “It's not fair, I lose every time!”
In another joke of the day, a young girl who needed money canvassed the neighborhood for work with hilarious consequences.
